Howard Kaylan, a singer for the rock band The Turtles, is about to marry his girlfriend and his band is traveling to England for the first time in the wake of the massive success of their hit single, "Happy Together", but fears that the band will not be well received in England. After the band's disastrous meeting with the Beatles, Kaylan has a life-changing dinner with guitarist Jimi Hendrix, whose band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, is about to make their American debut, and Kaylan finds that Hendrix shares Kaylan's fears about his American debut.

In my opinion, this is the best 60's movie ever made.
28 November 2014 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I'm telling all my friends about this film cause I know they'll love it.

Maybe because I'm from the same generation, maybe because when I walked into my first really hip club in 1967, "Purple Haze" was blasting out. Dear Jimi helped ease my soul into a new dimension.

This movie will definitely appeal to anyone who lived through the rise of rock and roll. It's also a great historical record for younger generations to experience the world-changing music of the 60's.

The Turtles songs were part of my happier memories of the 60's era. Their songs never age.

Though this movie was not expensively made, the acting is very good, the look-a-likes that were chosen were phenomenal, the directing so unobtrusive and the camera work and lighting, in my opinion, were just superb.

If Howard Kaylan reads this THANK YOU for making this film. I know what it's like to try writing your story.

All the best to the Turtle's and thank you for the great music and this cool tribute to Jimi Hendrix whom many of us had the privilege to "experience". Rock on, guys.
